Logic and the philosophy of science

Research in Logic and the Philosophy of science are about, from a theoretical and a historical point of view, the organic connections between philosophical investigation and scientific knowledge; logic and its specific methods; the logical structure of natural languages; computation and communication; the epistemology and representation of knowledge; the methodological and foundational issues peculiar to single sciences closely related with their development.

The main lines of logical-epistemological research in FILCOM Department are, among others:

  • contemporary views on causality;
  • epistemology of artificial sciences and cognitive science;
  • epistemology of artificial intelligence and robotics;
  • philosophy of physics, mathematics and symbolic forms;
  • philosophy of life sciences;
  • theoretical, explanatory and causal pluralism;
  • modal propositional and quantified logics: generalization of Kripkean semantics and proof theory;
  • cognitive modeling of reasoning and theories of rationality;
  • modeling, with particular reference to philosophy of medicine and psychiatry;
  • morphology of spacetime;
  • spaces and methods for artistic and scientific representation;
  • proof theory for classical and non-classical logics;
  • theory of representation and computability for topological spaces;
  • quantum theory of computation and information;
  • theories of scientific explanation.
